Welcome to the NIH Zebrafish Initiative Web site.
The NIH established the Trans-NIH Zebrafish Coordinating Committee in the fall of 1997 in response to the scientific community’s recommendation to promote the use of zebrafish as a model organism for the study of vertebrate development and disease. This website was created to provide a central information resource, focusing on major NIH-organized zebrafish meetings; funding opportunities for zebrafish genomics and genetic resources; major resources generated from grants funded in response to Trans-NIH zebrafish initiatives; major zebrafish genomic and genetic resources; courses and scientific meetings related to the zebrafish initiatives; and, selected reports and publications. When appropriate, items not in response to the Trans-NIH zebrafish initiatives, but which are deemed relevant, will be posted. Posting decisions are made by a subcommittee of the Trans-NIH Zebrafish Coordinating Committee.
Suggestions for improving the website and for items to be included are welcome. Comments may be sent to Lorette Javois at firstname.lastname@example.org.
